INVEST IN GOOD


How do we know we’re investing in good? Far too often, we don’t. Whether we’re buying stocks, making a deposit at the bank, or saving for retirement, it’s hard to ensure that our money is matching our values. But with our Direct Public Offering, or DPO, that all changes. See why others invested, read our pitch deck, and Invest in Good today!

About us

Social Capital Fund is a nonprofit, tax-exempt, Type I supporting organization under Section 509(a)(3) of the IRS Tax Code because it is supervised and controlled by its supported organization, Capital Good Fund. It does so in two ways: first, Social Capital Fund provides loan servicing to Capital Good Fund—things like loan review and collections—that improve operational efficiency. And second, Social Capital Fund raises social investments from forward-thinking individuals, family foundations, endowments, and financial institutions. Even better, Social Capital Fund pays these social investors up to 6%, and uses the funds to enable Capital Good Fund to invest in its seven-year plan to cover 100% of its operating expenses from its loan portfolio.

Here's how it works: you invest as little as $1,000 or as much as $4.25 million in Social Capital Fund. Social Capital Fund releases the funds to Capital Good Fund, which makes thousands of loans to American families. As these loans are paid back with interest, Capital Good Fund forwards a portion of the earnings to Social Capital Fund, which then pays you back—plus interest—on your maturity date. Along the way, you'll also receive annual interest-only payments. This one-of-a-kind social investment opportunity improves our communities while offering competitive interest rates!

Why Invest?

Incredible impact

While maturing, your investment enables Capital Good Fund to provide affordable loans and Financial Coaching to thousands of low-income families. For the past seven years, Capital Good Fund’s transformative loans have enabled families to cover medical expenses, move into safer apartments, cover the cost of citizenship, repair vehicles, and more.

A better economy

Poverty benefits no one, perhaps aside from the predatory financial services industry that takes advantage of the poor; the rest of us stand to benefit from an equitable economy. Providing low-income Americans the financial services they need—access to credit and sound financial advice—enables them to invest in themselves, their families, and their communities. The end result? A better economy.

Stronger families

Many low-income families are denied access to equitable financial services, and are left paying extortionary interest rates to payday lenders, rent-to-own stores, buy-here-pay-here car dealerships, and others—a $100 billion industry. Predatory lenders drain hard-earned and much-needed money from the bank accounts of the poor and vulnerable. Your investment helps Capital Good Fund, and those we serve, fight back!

Read why others are investing. Tens of millions of Americans lack access to equitable credit and sound financial advice, and a $100 billion industry has sprouted up to prey on the financially vulnerable. Learn more about our solution and view our Pitch Deck here.

Adeyinka has a gift when it comes to relating with others and their troubles. When she sought to publish her first book—an inspirational work about community and personal strength—she needed funding. We gave her a loan, and the rest is history. “It gives you a sense of belonging—to know you can go somewhere to start this thing you’ve been dreaming of and thought you’d never do.”

Dorothy came to Rhode Island looking for a fresh start in life. Being far away from the grandchildren she loved, she always wanted to at least send Christmas gifts, but could never get the money together. We gave her a loan to finally make it happen. That Christmas, she sent us a holiday card and thanked us: “I can finally feel like a grandma again.”
